Housing association tenancies
Not all housing association tenants have the same protection from eviction. The type of tenancy agreement you have will affect many of your rights, including how and when the housing association can evict you, whether you can pass your tenancy on and whether you have the right to buy.
Housing associations provide secure, assured, assured shorthold and starter tenancies or they can apply to the courts to demote your tenancy. They should give you a written tenancy agreement, which says clearly what type of tenancy you have, and outlines your rights and responsibilities.
Most housing association tenants have assured tenancies, but you should check your status if you are uncertain
Secure tenants have relatively stronger rights than other housing association tenants
